About the Exhibit:

In A Different Town Hall: Artists in Residence at DPC the artists took a new approach for filling The Browsing Room Gallery this summer. An idea circulated of curating the work of our neighboring studio mates, instead of picking our own work to exhibit. Simply letting someone else decide the fate of what artwork is shown quickly developed into a full-fledged democratic process. What ensued was a basic vote with a majority ruling, with one dissenter (RBG would be so proud!) and a summons to coordinate with each other to find the ‘right piece,’ while not knowing what the overall pool of artwork would represent. The works chosen span from paintings to pen and ink, along with the use of recycled materials and textiles for a versatile selection from a hung jury. We invite you to visit with us and view our work at The Browsing Room and come to your own conclusions.

About the Gallery:

The Browsing Room is a non-commercial gallery created in the space of the historic DPC’s old congregational library. The gallery serves as an extension of DPC’s long standing studio community known as the Artists in Residence (AIR) who have studio spaces above DPC’s chapel. The Browsing Room connects an art-seeking community with their AIR, as well as with other local and regional artists, by featuring a rotation of quarterly exhibitions. The gallery is currently open by appointment only.
